Weekend in Kuala Kubu Baru

Frog and PZ just spent a delightful, relaxing weekend discovering Kuala Kubu Baru in Selangor, better known as KKB, over an hour’s drive from Kuala Lumpur on the way to Frasier Hill.

What’s lovely about this area is not only its convenient easy drive on the highway, but you can discover beautiful waterfalls, excellent whitewater rafting on Sungei Selangor (Selangor River), rubber tubing down the rapids, kayaking, and an amazing panoramic view of the Selangor Dam Lake, one of the deepest dams in the world that feeds water to the surrounding areas of Selangor, Klang Valley and Kuala Lumpur.

It’s peaceful and idyllic – the perfect weekend getaway. The scenic drive winding up the hill after the highwayย is reminiscent of the olden days – all you see is deep green jungle. In the small sleepy town of KKB, the orang asli (indigenous tribes) live on the hilltop.

Though KKB is not featured in your Lonely Planet or Rough Guide, KKB is no secret among the locals. Weekends you’ll find entire families just splashing in the waterfalls and other such activities (even washing their hair!). So why not take a breather and discover the beautiful natural outdoors of KKB…

  1. KKB is one of my favourite little towns in Selangor. The other one is Kuala Selangor.
    I hope these 2 towns are safe from greedy development.
    Tried white water rafting at Sungai Selangor more than 10 years ago. It was great. Dunno if the river is still the same now.
